He really has. It's not only purple label but Ralph Lauren in general. I mean the music, the small details he uses in every picture. Even if someone don't like Ralph Lauren, he will automaticallyGood call. RLPL advertising is astounding. He's really nailed that American conception of Old World money.
Also agree with you there. But do you think RLPL is the one that beats many other brand advertising or in general Ralph Lauren (all collection)?I agree it is much more Great Gatsby than "Old World money". If you look at how Ralph Lauren himself dresses, or look at the cars he collects, you see that the man has a thing for that period. I believe he dressed the cast for the movie Great Gatsby with Robert Redford and everyone basically wears RLPL.
You could argue that Americans in that period were taking cues from England, which I'm sure is true, but that's a slightly different point. I heard somewhere that reporters anxiously reported what the Prince of Wales wore when he visited North America.
Well in somehow you think everything is perfect, looking at their clothes, background, music, models you just wanna buy the damn clothes and your brain plays with you^Makes it seem very striving. I like a lot of Ralph's stuff but have never understood the appeal of the ads.
